I find myself having to administer a linux web proxy server, and I have hardly any knowledge of linux whatsoever. So far google has given me a huge helping hand, but I've come across a little problem I cannot get round, so I desperately need your help now.
When I try to modify a file with vi editor, I get the following errors
E297 Write error in swapfile
E303 Unable to open swapfile for "resolv.conf" (which is the file i'm trying to modify)
After googling the topic I realised that it might be a full disk issue, which would be quite likely analysing the circumsntances, but I was completely unable to check the free/used space in my disk.
df command only displays the headings to the columns, but nothing below. Nor do df -h or df -k.
df -a returns the following output:
Filesystem / 1K-blocks / Used / Available / Use% / Mounted on
proc / 0 / 0 / 0 / - / /proc
Distro is Slackware 9.1.0
How can I check the free space without the df command? Or how can I make df work?
Couldn't find anything on the topic.
Sorry if the thread is in the wrong category - appreciate if you move it to the right one. Just couldn't find a more suitable one.
Any help will be greatly appreciated !!!!
Thanks in advance
